You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways. (Psalm 139:3)
The psalmist uses a colorful word in this verse—discern. In the Eastern world, using a flat basket, farmers throw grain up in the air. While it is suspended, the prevailing wind blows away the chaff, and then the pure grain is caught in the basket. With this vivid image, the psalmist is saying, “It’s as if You threw my life up in the air, and the light and the wind of your Spirit blew away everything except the real me. When I fall back down into Your hands, you have so sifted me that You discern me.”
